Research has identified an increased risk of lower extremity injury postconcussion, which may be due to aberrant biomechanics during dynamic tasks. The purpose of this study was to compare the drop landing biomechanics between individuals with and without a concussion history. Twenty-five individuals with and 25 without a concussion history were ma...
Article
Context: The documentation practices of athletic trainers (ATs) employed in the secondary school setting, including their strategies for, barriers to, and perceptions of documentation, have been characterized in previous research. The documentation practices of ATs employed in other settings have yet to be studied in depth. Objective: To examine...
Article
Context: Athletic trainers (ATs) recognize patient care documentation as an important part of clinical practice. However, ATs using 1 electronic medical record (EMR) platform reported low accountability and lack of time as barriers to documentation. Whether ATs using paper, other EMRs, or a combined paper-electronic system exhibit similar behavior...

Teachers play an important role in facilitating a student’s return to school after a concussion. Currently, there is limited evidence on teachers’ experiences and their role in managing concussions in the classroom. This study investigated teachers’ perceived knowledge and confidence regarding concussion recognition and management. A cross-sectiona...
Article
Context Previous research on athletic trainers' (ATs) documentation practices in the secondary school setting has focused on users of 1 electronic medical record (EMR) platform. These studies have identified that ATs use multiple platforms for documentation, including paper, even when an EMR is available. Objective To examine the documentation pra...
Article
Context The skill sets of athletic trainers (ATs) provide a unique contribution to the US military's optimization of physical readiness, and these positions are becoming more prevalent. However, knowledge regarding the job characteristics of, and ATs' preparation for, employment in a military setting is limited. Objective To assess the position an...
Article
Full-text available
Context California is currently the only state that does not regulate who can and cannot call themselves athletic trainers (ATs). Therefore, previous national or state-specific investigations may not have provided an accurate representation of AT availability at the secondary school level in California. Similarly, it is unknown whether the factors...
Article
Context: Medical documentation is a required component of patient care in all health care professions. Objective: To evaluate athletic trainers' perceived behaviors toward, barriers to, and confidence in their medical documentation. Design: Cross-sectional study. Setting: Web-based survey. Patients or other participants: We purchased a lis...
Article
Context Athletic trainers (ATs) who serve as preceptors for athletic training students must model, facilitate, and guide professional skills and behaviors, including medical documentation. Preceptors have the unique ability to combine skill practice with real-time patient encounters for athletic training students. Objective To describe the frequen...
Article
Objective: School counselors are important members of the concussion management team. However, little is known about their perceptions of academic adjustments for concussed studentathletes. Methods: Participants were solicited to complete the Beliefs, Attitudes and Knowledge of Pediatric Athletes with Concussion – School Counselor (BAKPAC-SC) surve...
Article
Full-text available
Context: High-quality patient care documentation is an essential component of any health care professional's daily practice. Whereas athletic trainers (ATs) recognize the importance of patient care documentation, several barriers may prevent them from producing high-quality patient care documentation. Objective: To explore beneficial strategies...
Article
Background: Preceptors are important contributors to the professional development of students in allied healthcare programs. Considering their role in supervising and teaching students during clinical education, it is important that preceptors understand and embody effective characteristics and behaviors. Most existing research on preceptor effect...
Article
Teachers play an important role in supporting students' return to school after concussion. This online cross sectional survey examined teachers' beliefs and practices regarding concussion and academic support strategies, or academic adjustments (AA). Most teachers (99.1%) agreed-to-strongly agreed concussions affect school performance, and many (71...
Article
Full-text available
Context: Clinical education experiences that actively engage students in patient care are important to the development of competent clinicians. It is important to assess athletic training students’ time spent clinically and explore new technology that may facilitate more active learning during clinical education. Objective: To assess athletic train...
Article

Context: Engaging clinical experiences that allow extensive active learning and patient care interactions are important for the professional development of athletic training students. Understanding students’ use of clinical time is important when attempting to improve these experiences. Objective: Gain participants’ perspectives on active learning...
Article
Full-text available
Context: For the practice characteristics of the services athletic trainers (ATs) provide to be identified, all ATs must complete high-quality patient care documentation. However, little is known about ATs' perceptions of patient care documentation or the potential barriers they may encounter while trying to ensure high-quality documentation. Obj...
